Starting Saturday, March 21 through Sunday, March 29 2015, supporters from all over the nation will run/walk 3.1 miles to make a difference for Rare Disease. The 1st Annual DENIM Dash 5k Run/Walk for Rare Disease is a virtual race, so you have the flexibility to participate wherever, whenever is most convenient for you! Run/walk anytime between March 21-29 and raise awareness and funds to support families affected by rare disease. Register today! It’s that easy!
The DENIM Dash was created through collaborative efforts between Orphan Drug Solutions and Global Genes™ as a way to ensure that anyone, anywhere, can participate and show their support, raise awareness for patients, family and friends of the Rare Disease Community, while also helping to enrich and sustain the educational programs created by Global Genes!
Tips & Ideas for Your Virtual Run
Use different apps like Google Maps, Map My Run, Nike Running, etc., to determine a 3.1 mile route near you. You can do this in a group, with a friend or by yourself at the gym. Then, you can share your 5k completed course (or along the way!) with your friends, family, and other members of the Rare Disease Community through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine by using #DenimDash2015! Can’t run 3.1 miles? No problem! The best part about the virtual 5k is that you can walk, run, ride, or even skip as long or short of a distance as you want! All you have to do is register! (must register by 3/2/15 to receive a race t-shirt)
Maximize your fundraising impact! Ask your friends and family to sponsor your run! Ask them to donate per mile or to donate a flat amount for the total race. Please also keep in mind that there’s no set amount for sponsorship, so your friends and family can sponsor you at any level that’s feasible for them. You can also choose to pay more than the $35 registration fee as an extra donation!
